Charlevoix is Lined with Petunias!

What began as an idea in 1982 to add beauty to the city has been a nationally recognized feat: Charlevoix's five miles of US 31 are lined with petunias each year and they are gorgeous!

Beginning in 2019, the petunia project changed from the flowers planted along the road 450+ baskets hanging along the road. A redesigned highway eliminated a lane near the planting area were volunteers could safely plant as well as water throughout the season. The special watering truck, a highlight in parades, was sold. nd is ready for the city's handcrafted 16' steel flower hole punch roller.

Operation Petunia is unique to Charlevoix. Residents and visitors love the look of the petunias. And, of course, the petunia's perfume indeed makes Charlevoix special!
